Mike Beaty's Award Winning Horses

Mike Beaty of Russell (left) holds up a horse draft bridle while standing next to his two Belgian horses, Bert and Ernie.  Bert and Ernie are named after the famous Sesame Street duo and were award-winning horses at the Iowa State Fair in 2008, 2009 an 2011.

In the picture to the right, cousins Elizabeth Wright (left) of Indianola and Amelia Phillips of Williamson stand with Bert and Ernie that were at the Lucas County Historical Society Museum's open house on October 15th.  Beaty gave people demonstrations on the horses and told about harnesses and bridles used on them as well.
